Transport in Greenwich

Greenwich offers plentiful transport options, being served by Greenwich and Maze Hill train stations and North Greenwich Underground stations. Being so close to the Thames, Greenwich also features extensive river boat options (as well as bus), making movement north of the Thames an even more appealing option. Cyclists are also catered for, thanks to the Thames Path National Trail along the river, as well as the National Cycle Network Route 1 running through the district.

Shopping in Greenwich

A visit to Greenwich wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Greenwich Market. Specialising in vintage clothes and milliner’s stores, there is plenty to explore here – not to mention countless collector’s stalls and street food vendors – and makes for a perfect day or afternoon out.  For something totally different, visit the Icon Outlet at the O2. Here you will find leading designer stores in a contemporary venue – as well as countless eateries to keep you going before heading back to your Greenwich serviced apartment for a restful evening.

Cultural Highlights in Greenwich

There is an abundance of things to see near any one of our serviced apartments in Greenwich. The Royal Observatory Greenwich stands on the prime meridian line, meaning you can skip between hemispheres. In addition, it tells the story of how the observatory and its scientists played a major role in advancing astronomy. It also houses a four and a half billion year asteroid! Continue the navigational theme by boarding the Cutty Sark – a tea clipper built in the eighteenth century and filled with history and genuine artefacts from a by-gone era.  

Facts about Greenwich

Like many other London districts, Greenwich has played backdrop to many major Hollywood films. These include The King’s Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean and Four Weddings and a Funeral. A further claim to fame – Henry VIII was born in Greenwich at the Palace of Placentia – which once stood where the Old Royal Navy College is today. Finally, Greenwich has a spooky reputation. It is claimed that both Charlton House and the Greenwich foot tunnel are haunted, with the latter subject to frequent reports of a Victorian couple strolling in the depths at night time.
